Intense Cycles is excited to announce the signing of Conor Macfarlane as part of their global athlete programme. Based in Queenstown, New Zealand. Conor is well known for his exploits as a freeride athlete and also competes at select EWS Enduro, Crankworx World Tour and DH bike events such as the Loosefest series.
“I’m stoked to be riding for a brand that has a history like Intense does, making some of the most progressive bikes out there and helping out a bunch of athletes which were, and still are, household names within biking circles. Riding for Intense is coming full circle for me, my first DH bike was an Intense 9 years ago so it’s cool to go back to where it started. Talking about back where it started, I’m also stoked to be riding for a brand which Matt at Wide Open Distributors distributes in to New Zealand. He is the first sponsor I got and I wouldn’t be where I am today without his help, so cheers.” – Conor Macfarlane
Conor has a down to earth, positive attitude and super professional approach to competing, building and filming making him a great addition to the Intense global programme.
“We are thrilled to welcome Conor on board. His riding style and his positive approach to all different aspects of riding really sets him apart and we believe his best is yet to come. Super stoked to have him on Intense” – Jenn Gabrielli – Intense Cycles
Conor will continue his long-term relationships with ENVE, POC Sports, Marzocchi, FSA, SDG, ODI and Mons Royale plus forming a new partnership with Deity for pedals and hard tail frames.
